With the outside looked at, it's time to dive inside to find out exactly what we have going on. Pulling the covers open, there isn't a whole lot to see. One side shows us a HD 4870 X2, our card reader, Blu-ray ROM drive, a single 120mm fan and our connectivity ports.
You can clearly see for yourself the amount of room there is to play with, or therelack of I should say. The biggest problem that we were worried about come testing was the system over heating due to the sheer amount of power in the system.
Turning over to the other side, we can see a bit more. At the top of the case we see a 1000 Watt modular Antec power supply unit that manages to only just fit. Below that we have a Zalman cooler that is helping our Q9550 run at a super fast 3.6GHz.
Behind we see the back of the HD 4870 X2; this isn't the back of the same one, though. Installed in this system is not one HD 4870 X2 cards, but two! Moving back towards the front of the case we also see four 2GB DDR2 Team memory modules giving us a total of 8GB of memory.
Hidden away in the tiny system is not only a single 1TB drive for storage, but two 128GB OCZ Core SSD drives in a RAID 0 configuration. Everything about this system is mean, from the overclock to the graphics card configuration. It should prove to be quite the performer in our tests.
